Marketing Tips

 

Marketing a Credit and Debt Counseling Services Business

Promotional tactics for credit and debt counseling services businesses are exceptionally diverse. But in our experience, there are a handful of tips and strategies that will deliver the best return for your marketing efforts.

We recognize that the best credit and debt counseling services business owners tend to possess solid marketing skills. Yet in this industry, the characteristics of able marketers aren't always obvious.

Marketing increases the brand footprint of a credit and debt counseling services business using a carefully crafted mix of techniques and tactics.

Remember the Importance of Signage

Good signage is a Business 101 concept. Even though credit and debt counseling services businesses vary in scope and circumstance, sign content should focus on some common industry themes in addition to the details of your business. Visibility, branding elements and other considerations are all factors in the design and size of your operation's business signage.

Given the fact that signage in credit and debt counseling services businesses is unlike the signage for other types of businesses, you'll want to make sure to adhere to industry norms as well as local zoning requirements. Talk to a nearby business sign franchise company or an independent business sign company and see what they recommend.

Cost Tracking

The economy is a constant concern for people who own a credit and debt counseling services business. For direct mailing campaigns and other strategic initiatives, it's hard to argue with the ROI you receive from updated mailing lists provided by the industry's leading list vendors. A solid mailing list minimizes the risks associated with stale leads or leads that fall outside of your marketing parameters.

But mailing lists aren't the only way you can reduce costs. Most accounting software solutions have features that allow you to track costs in multiple expense categories and receive alerts when expenses suddenly swing outside of normal parameters.

Discounts

Discounts drive purchasing decisions, and credit and debt counseling services business customers are no exception. The power of a great discount is its ability to convince buyers that are receiving special treatment, a deal that isn't ordinarily available. Due to the market intelligence of buyers in the credit and debt counseling services business industry, value discounts need to be attractive when stacked against the competition. For better results, consider rotating the products you discount to incentivize customers to monitor your marketing channels.
